It's not uncommon for pregnant women or their significant others to be concerned about sex during pregnancy. Fortunately, unless your doctor's advised against it, generally sex during pregnancy is OK and even healthy. That being said, there are still a few things that happen in pregnancy sex that you shouldn't ignore.
As with anything during pregnancy, it's important to listen to your body and take note of any uncomfortable or painful signs it may be showing. Sex during pregnancy isn't abnormal and doesn't have to cause pain; however, according to My Pregnant Health, pregnancy sex can feel a bit weird, uncomfortable, or overly sensitive at first. And that's totally normal. As you progress through your pregnancy, you can easily find new positions and grow more comfortable with sex and your changing body.
It's also important to realize, going into your pregnancy, that sex may not feel the same to you physically or you may not feel the same about sex. If you continue feeling uncomfortable or start noticing some abnormal symptoms during or after sex, it's always a good idea to mention it to your doctor during your next check-up. Additionally, if you experience some of the symptoms listed out below during sex, consider reaching out to your doctor to get further advice.
